Automobile accidents account for the majority of personal injuries incurred by individuals in the United States and across the world. If the person involved in a collision refuses to stop and exchange insurance, identification information, or summon the police, it is referred to as a hit and run accident and constitutes a criminal offense. The offender may face both criminal and civil liability, with penalties ranging from fines, jail time, and the payment of damages.

Trucking accidents occur through reckless driving, speeding or mechanical faults and can also involve cargo issues such as chemical or toxic spills. The reasons for a trucking accident may include tight deadlines, over-loading, stress and fatigue of the driver, inadequate training, ignorance of safety concerns, and traffic violations.
